Nothing special. Ice melts fast in warm weather.
on January 19, 2012
We tailgate a lot and thought this might be a good addition. It is not as big as I thought it would be once it is fully inflated. On a warm day (around 80 deg) under a pop up tent, the ice melts and it just ends up being a swimming pool. By trial and error we found that by leaving the ice in their bags or transferring the ice to smaller bags it helped a lot. We had cakes on top of the ice for one party and a couple hours into it the chocolate frosting started to melt and go into the bar. By the end of the day, it looked like a muddy swimming pool.
Looks: Also, it looks kind of cheap if aesthetics are your thing. It only comes in plastic white.
Cleaning: Cleaning it was a breeze. Just dumped out the ice-water and hosed it down.
Storage: Deflating was easy and it takes up virtually no room in a storage bin.
Bottom Line: It's just a piece of plastic blown up around the sides. We haven't used it indoors yet but if temperatures outside are above 75 there will be a little melting action. This might turn into our air conditioned only salad bar instead of a tailgate piece. For $10 it's not a bad purchase but I wouldn't pay any more than that.
